The Double Eagle $20 gold piece is the largest U.S. gold coin ever produced for use in daily circulation. The first Double Eagle was minted in 1849, the year after gold was discovered at Sutter's Mill in California. The coin was authorized by Congress as a way to use the large supplies of gold flowing into commerce from California. Each Double Eagle coin contained nearly one full ounce of gold.
Designed by world-renowned sculptor and Chief Engraver James Barton Longacre, the coin features a left-facing portrait of Lady Liberty on the obverse and a heraldic eagle clutching a doublescroll on the reverse.
The 1861 Gold Double Eagle represents the first year that the total mintage of the coin approached 4 million pieces. This version featured two reverse designs Longacre's original eagle and a second one created by Anthony C. Paquet. The Paquet design closely resembles Longacre's work except for a few minor details. The Paquet 1861 Double Eagle Gold Coin did not last long, as the Longacre piece became the preferred option.
